I am no stranger to SEO-centric articles that promote a product, service and/or idea with a humorous undertone to boot. I have worked for local magazines doing both general editorial work about the community as well as fashion and beauty reviews and press releases; Fortune 500 companies generating marketing copy and promoting the progress of the company within the industry through various social media platforms; and retail organizations doing general sales. To put it bluntly: I know how to sell and to whom, and in such a way that it generates success for all parties involved.
